Gremio had hoped to hold on to Arthur until the end of the year, but the midfielder has completed his long-awaited move to Barcelona.

Barcelona have announced the €40million signing of Arthur, the Gremio midfielder agreeing an immediate move to Camp Nou on a six-year deal.

It brings to an end one of the longer running transfer sagas, with the Catalan club finally having got their way. 

"The player will sign a contract with the Club for the following six seasons, until the end of the 2023/24 campaign; his buyout clause is to be set at €400 million," the club said in a statement. 

"Arthur likes playing with quick touches and short, triangulating passes involving his teammates. One of his virtues is his ability to get open, which makes him a dangerous right-footed threat near the penalty area.

"At 172 cm tall (5 ft 8 in), Arthur also stands for his skill at protecting the ball and his eagerness to play vertically up the field," they added.
